^EPUB ↬ 101 Dog Tricks: Step by Step Activities to Engage, Challenge, and Bond with Your Dog ☆ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free

I got this book from the library after getting a different dog training book from the authors of that book and wanting something a little basic We have a rescue dog, Moose, who loves learning tricks and also needs to learn basics I was looking for simple, fun tricks the kids and I could teach him I did find a few such as adapting shake hands, which he knows, to wave goodbye but of the 101 there were only about 6 that I made a note to try and those were very, very basic.There are some cool sounding tricks in the book like teach your dog to get a can of beer from the fridge, but it s not for real You can see in the photo that the beer can is actually empty and you have to do things like tie a towel around the fridge handle and put it in a can cooler to make it easier for the dog to actually carry it and looking closely even then you can see that can was empty too Your dog is never going to actually get you a can of beer or pop from the fridge from this trick the way it s presented in the book It s funny as a party trick, but the author never says to use an empty can and that Fido won t be able to actually do it, so it seemed a little shady For the record, I don t want to train Moose to get any drinks from the fridge or even to know how to open it, which seems like a terrible idea for our food obsessed boy anyway Each trick has color photos showing about 3 4 steps and a little trouble shooting box It was helpful for seeing how someone might introduce the idea of some of these positions that wouldn t come naturally to most dogs I d recommend it as a library check out to look for some fun inspiration. A for awesome trick ideas, nice layout and great pictures C for execution and training suggestions I have several problems with the training ideas First of all, don t use a cue until your dog is doing it properly Don t encourage the dog to do the trick for the first time with the cue Pleaz You ll either teach them early on that the cue doesn t mean anything or that the cue means to do it with the mistakes you had in practice Also, I would have liked to see clickers encouraged Clickers are especially helpful with teaching tricks or things that don t come naturally to the dog And some of the ideas don t quite work For instance I tried the suggestions for bow Push your hand toward your dog s nose and downward with your dog standing in front of you I tried it with several variations and couldn t make it work I ve had luck shaping that cue So, I d say it s a worthwhile book for expanding your imagination on tricks but you might need to draft your own way of training them Still looking for a great trick book. As a professional dog trainer, I recommend this book to all of my students Brilliantly presented, the process for training 101 innovative dog tricks are presented in an easy to follow format that makes it easy for dog owners to bond with and engage with their dogs while teaching them cool tricks If you have a pointing dog that doesn t get to go hunting, you need this book Many of the tricks require focus and mental acuity and energy burning physical output fitness benefits too This book is a winner.

This is the best dog training book I have read It is easy to understand, good print and pictures. Easy for pupMy dog took to these easily She already knew the basics, so to add to them was much easier than expected It was great for her mental stimulation She s a border collie mix and really needed to learn new things. Fun tricks to teach pup There s many levels of difficulty so I ll have this book ready to refer to when Coco is ready and she s a fast learner. I didn t try all of these by any means, but the tricks I did teach my new puppy worked well.
